There are many dangers associated with swimming and diving that most people do not stop to consider. Swimming is a very popular pastime and swimming pool accidents and injuries are more common than you may think. More than 3,000 people drown in swimming pools, with the number of serious injuries increasing each year. Injuries to the spinal cord and brain, as well as fractured bones and heads are the most common types of injuries that are sustained in or around swimming pools. With these types of injuries, permanent brain damage or spinal cord damage may occur. It is also not safe to assume that swimming pools are the only place where a person is in danger of drowning. Sinks, fish tanks, bathtubs, toilets, hot tubs, ponds, and spas could all be considered places in which a person could sustain serious injury.
